Ladies & Gentlemen...

I admit. I have given in to the great temptation.

Plagued by the miseries of life and time, the mortal seeming remains tormented by a multitude of evils, all at once. Each trial against decadence, appears as an insurmountable pinnacle. Each battle won against the norms of society, is a war lost to decadence. Such is the plight of the righteous man. And such is the gravity of a moral dilemma.

To quote the bard himself :
"I have of late, but wherefore I know not, lost all my mirth, forgone all custom of exercises; and indeed, it goes so heavily with my disposition that this goodly frame, the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory; this most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave o'erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire! Why, it appears no other thing to me than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours. What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason! How infinite in faculties! In form and moving, how express and admirable! In action how like an angel! in apprehension, how like a god! The beauty of the world! The paragon of animals! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust?"

-Hamlet
(Act 2, Scene 2)

Yes, my friend. Take heart, for I have now joined the ranks of the Tweeters of the world!
*dramatic interlude plays in background*

Having succumbed to the pop-culture fad that Twitter epitomizes and embodies so perfectly, I consider it my job... nay, my noble duty, to pass on the malady. Corrupting the youth of the nation, after all, shall always remain a hobby. Bwuahahaha!

So, go ahead. Join me here.

P.S. Fact of the matter: I seek partners-in-crime. We'll even work out a secret-handshake!

You have no idea. :|
Trust me.

But then, there are also those who know me by my trademark stoicism. Many moods, many colors.

my clairvoyance suggests that accidents are likely to happen in the premises of our college. this post is a presage, a prelude to something fortunate. the only doubt i have is: "who goes first?", "director or director general?"

does any body speak in simple english , anywhere around here.

@Madhur: Ahh... I think we all know who the clear majority leans towards. *some more evil laughter*

@Take a Hike: It's amazing how the point of satire is missed entirely.

The excerpt from Hamlet threw me off! Shakespeare would have been proud of you. Have you ever considered becoming a play right?

JD said...

A Hamlet build-up for a Twitter advertisement. You put most of those ohkay-what-are-you-advertising-for-again-oh-look-toothpaste ads to shame! :D

Sherry Wasandi said...

@ Anty: I'm obsessed. I recite Hamlet in my sleep. I quote shamelessly, in the most inopportune of setups and situations. No kidding.

It's a disease.

@ JD: Thank you! I feel proud. Amul Macho should hire me now for their campaigns.
